The travelling exhibition “Ever Closer Union: – The legacy of the Treaties of Rome for Today’s Europe (1957-2017)”, prepared on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome, is making its final stop at the European University Institute in June.
The fourteen panels, which travelled to 100 cities and 62 countries worldwide, are now being exhibited at the Badia Fiesolana between 4 and 13 June. The exhibition examines Europe from past to present, in four sections: a historical overview, unifying Europe through Economy and law, social Europe and the European citizenship; EEC/EU international dimension and future challenges facing the EU.
The exhibition was designed and developed by the Historical Archives of the European Union in Florence, with the support of the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, the European Commission, the Italian Presidency of the Council of Ministers, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the National News Agency ANSA.
Having travelled to 150 venues over various continents, the exhibition was seen by more than 200.00 people. It will now return to Florence, where it was originally developed.
The exhibition will be on display in the Cloister of the Badia Fiesolana. More information about the exhibition can be found on the Alcide De Gasperi page.
